IRS Scammers are Busy


Recommended Posts

Got the same robo-call twice yesterday with a computer generated message purporting to be from the IRS. The call said that I or my tax lawyer should call a phone number to discuss my taxes. Very annoying.

If you are the recipient of any such call, just hang up. That's not how the IRS does business.

The calls we get also threaten to arrest you if you don't send them money.

I love the fact they are giving you a call back number.... because I make a game of seeing how angry I can make the guy by continuously calling him back.

ME: "I think there's something wrong with your phone, we got disconnected."

SCAMMER: "I HUNG UP ON YOU!"

ME: "Oh, that wasn't very nice of you."

Take care with that. There are (or used to be) scams that count on you calling back because the line is a pay line. You call and the meter starts running and the longer they can keep you talking the greater the charge on your phone bill.
